A charming hotel, slightly off the main track but still well-located to the Tonhalle, the Opera, the main shopping street. Well-appointed--not new, but in top condition. Wonderful, varied breakfast, good restaurant. Would stay there again on return tj Zurich.

The Glaernishhof is a well located 4 star hotel within a few minutes walk of the Lake and the main shopping area. It is situated in a quiet street and is well maintained. Our room was large with all the amenities you would expect including free wi fi and even a couple of free items in the fridge. The shower... More

Good location; friendly staff. I have been to Zurich for triathlon; at the weekend there was an ironman competition. They arrenged breakfast hours for triathlets. The hotel is really sports friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The furnitares was old but acceptable as a vintage design.

I spent two nights recently at the Hotel Glaernischhof, and was favorably impressed. Zurich is, obviously, one of the more expensive cities in Europe (or anywhere else), and in the past I've paid some rather eye-popping rates for hotel accommodations to that turned out to not be all that great. The rate I paid at the Hotel Glaernischhof, while very... More

From the moment we entered we had the feeling of home away from home. At the desk we had found smiling faces with efficient welcome. The suit at floor 2 was very large, clean, with 2 large bathrooms and very good beds. Facilities were typical for a good 5 stars hotel and special requests were handled at once. Breakfast was...

Check in was efficient and the staff did an effort to allocate a room as I arrived about 2-3h early. The rooms are well equipped, traditional but solid furnishing and rather spacious for Zurich standards (average for Asian standards though). I very much like the central location near Paradeplatz and the lake. Easy to go for a good run in... More

This was our first stay in Zurich and we really enjoyed our stay which was in a large part due to the quality of the hotel we stayed in. The room was very comfortable with a king size bed with quality linen. The room size was more than adequate and complimented by the ample storage and hanging space. The room... More

This was our first trip to Zurich, we loved this hotel and this city. The location is sooo central and given that the Zurich CBD is so compact, we had no issue with easily walking around to see the sights (with the exception perhaps of Central train station, which is on the 'other' side of the CBD.
